What are you using to manage your Source Code, and provide any form of Version Control.

For now, I have just been making backups to a Flash stick, and a 2nd computer... but I would like to do something a little more elegant...

Possible CVS or something similar.

If your doing solo development like myself, you could substitute the xcode snapshot feature. I've used it exclusively. Otherwise go with svn.

I use SVN. It's great and REALLY easy to set up (esp if you have a spare mac).

CVS is a bit more out of date, most people are using Subversion (SVN [Free]) or Perforce (P4 [Paid]) in commercial development.

Both of which integrate into XCode.

If you're serious about managing your source code, use of a VPS (Instead of using a spare computer, I prefer things being hosted off-site) isn't a bad solution, considering you can get one setup for $20/month and then throw in daily backups for another few dollars a month.

We use SVN, most of the time via the command line. Unfortunately XCode SVN Integration is simply terrible, breaks way too often for its own good.

I concur with Aea, I had problems with the source control integration initially,granted I did not give it much time, and now I am using SVN from the command line and it works just fine for me.

free subversion hosting

this may be helpful to some...
I was looking into source control myself and since I prefer to use an off-site SVN server I searched online for subversion hosting. I found a site called http://projectlocker.com/ that offers free hosting for up to 5 team members and 500MB. For my purpose this is sufficient. I am not affiliated with the company just thought I'd share.
